Last week (the week of August 23rd...sorry, I can't remember the exact day) I saw a Transall C-160 heading Northbound over Southern Rhode Island, taking the same path as PVD approaches from the South. As far as I know, the USA does not have C-160s in its armed forces, but I have noticed that German C-160s have been spotted in Toronto. Anybody have any idea what this international military transport was doing over RI (either approaching Quonset ANG Base or Providence T.F. Green Airport)?

I don't if this helps but we have C-160's from German Air Force landing regulary at Azores on tech. stops. I think there is quite a fluid movement of German airplanes passing the pond, but I must agree a Transall in US skies is always a great event. And did you notice a slow they fly????
